In case you hadn't heard, Cleveland has put Robert Griffin III on IR after he suffered a shoulder injury in the Browns week one game against the Eagles.
The Browns lost the game 29-10 -- and the long, sordid history of QB failures in Cleveland seems to be well on its way to continuing with RGIII's IR assignment.
Griffin does stand a chance to return mid-season -- but the earliest possible date he can return is November 10.
So where does this put you if you are a Madden gamer (and also a glutton for punishment) who uses the Browns extensively?
Well, hello there Josh McCown.
Compared to RGIII's 75 overall talent, McCown is a 71 overall -- so the drop off isn't that big. Especially considering RG III's speed and throw power are the two differentiatiors between him and McCown.
McCown actually has advantages in throwing accuracy in short (83 vs. 81), medium (78 vs. 77) and deep (78 vs. 75), so it could be a lot worse -- like being an actual Cleveland Browns quarterback.
